A business owner who has barely kept afloat due to COVID-19 lockdowns in Australia has slammed governments for not keeping consistent rules in place across different industries.

Chris Neal, from Queanbeyan in rural New South Wales near Canberra, runs a sound and lighting business supplying music festivals and events throughout the nation.

He said it was unacceptable that state governments are willing to allow up to 40,000 sporting fans to pack into stadiums, but not allow music events to go ahead with the same amount of patrons.

Like many others, the COVID-19 crisis left him out of work and desperately searching for a way to make ends meet.

Careful what you wish for: COVID-19 transforms population politics

  Careful what you wish for: COVID-19 transforms population politics The pandemic has given Sydney a "breather" from population growth. But the city - and the state - is about to discover how our coveted standard of living relies on immigration.Population pressures have preoccupied NSW politics for decades. Traffic congestion, crowded trains and high-rise property developments are perennial themes of public debate, especially in Sydney. Migration is routinely blamed for pushing up prices in the city's famously expensive housing market.

The UK Government has set out a package of measures to protect public services, people and businesses through this period of disruption caused by COVID - 19 .

After 21 years in business, Mr Neal is genuinely fearful of having to sell his business assets dirt cheap due to the impacts of the virus and subsequent lockdowns.

On Saturday morning, he penned a moving letter to the government via social media criticising the regulations which have kept him out of work.

He shared a photo taken at Suncorp Stadium prior to the NRL preliminary match between Melbourne Storm and Canberra Raiders which clearly demonstrated a lack of social distancing.

'The government needs to be consistent with its rule,' he wrote alongside the photo.

Virus hits beach resort, as pandemic surges in Argentina

  Virus hits beach resort, as pandemic surges in Argentina MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina (AP) — Hundreds of Argentine flags dotted the sand of a beach at the Mar del Plata resort, a poignant memorial to the victims of the novel coronavirus in one of this South American country’s new virus hotspots. When the flags were planted last week, they were a tribute to the more than 500 people who had died from COVID-19 over the previous seven months in Argentina's top resort. Since then, about 100 more have died and Mar del Plata has become an epicenter in a coronavirus surge through Argentina's interior that has given it the fifth-highest confirmed case total in the world.

The Swedish Government has presented a range of different measures to limit the spread of the COVID - 19 virus and to mitigate the economic impact of it. The government ’s overarching goal is to safeguard people’s lives and health and to secure the health care capacity.

Mr Neal said the New South Wales government recently announced changes to current COVID-19 restrictions, including allowing up to 500 people to attend events with strict social distancing rules.

While the allowance was seen as a win for many, Mr Neal said does little to help his business.

'Our business focuses on events with much larger audiences than 500, this doesn't do much to help us,' he said.

He also added that the NRL Grand Final, which will go ahead in Sydney next week, has a capacity of 40,000.
